right behind his gills, on his....chest area? right by his short fins, he has this odd pale bump that none of my betta loving RL friends have seen before.
also, he went from being a really gorgeous blue/red/green color combo to this sad bronz-y color, and only goes green or blue when I change his water, or add something to his tank.
I just moved him into a 5-gall tank about 2 days ago, with a filter, temp about 75-80 degrees, with a light that I turn off at night.
the only thing I have had time/money to get him besides is some lovely gravel and a little statue with a tiny living plant.
everything is new, the water was from my fridge filter and warmed, I have a stress coat that was supposed to stave off illness, it has aloe in it.
only fishy I have is a betta, but Im thinking about getting him a few neons/tetras. he lives off of pellets, but I have started giving him blood worms on the weekends. it doesnt seem to do much.
um....in the day I open my curtains and he does get some natural sun.
I bought him at wallmart.....actually quite a while ago. at least a few months, and he's always been a bit lethargic, but he seems happy enough. he really likes his new filter. he swims slowley against the pull and yawns. its really cute.
should I just stop buying fish? cuz I just cause them stress.
